Microservice Development Environment on OSX

If you are a Mac user who likes the feeling of deleting stuff and have drunken the docker inc. kool-aid (i.e. implementing microservice architecures on top of the “docker-toolbox”) this just might mean a breath of fresh air for you as well:

  1. uninstall vagrant
  2. trash your “favourite” hypervisor (vmware, virtualbox, etc) with it
  3. learn about the existence of the lean xhyve built on top of Apple’s own hypervisor framework (only on OSX 10.10+)
  4. dlite and docker-compose your docker development containers
  5. docker-compose up  yourself towards getting some programming done again
